This is the first picture I have of Ulrich, taken at about age 5
This is Ulrich at age 7 (March 2012) soon after I became his correspondence sponsor
This one I received in May 2012 (what a beautiful family)
Then, all of a sudden, Ulrich is all-grown-up!
It's weird to see this boy grow up before my eyes. Eight months ago, I didn't even know where Burkina Faso was, and now I know a real child that lives there. What a crazy thing! I find myself looking at these photos and exclaiming "they grow up so fast!" as if I was Ulrich's mother or close family member. But, oddly enough, I feel like he is part of my family. This boy I've never met is constantly in my thoughts and prayers.
